I’m 49 and have been interested in memory since college. I’m wanting to sharpen up my memory to store useful larger numbers, grocery lists, and day-to-day memory tasks. I got back into it after watching that Memory Competition documentary on Netflix, with Ben P., Nelson D., and the awesome Yanjaa W.
I compete in competition forecasting, and really could use methods to store tidbits to improve my judgement calls that I can stack on top of statistical analysis.
Years ago, I tried to read the Memory Book by Lucas my Sophomore year but gave up on the Major system then. Seems really weird and too much work. I retained the knowledge of remember faces from it, and used that for decades, but I remember throwing the book away in disgust after college.
So here I am again, full circle!
